Marshall Cowley

Consulting Faculty

As a consultant, coach and facilitator specialising in executive leadership development and organisation-wide cultural change, Marshall works with individuals and businesses internationally to close the gap between what they know and what they do, between what they plan and what they achieve.


For the past 30 years, Marshall has either been leading people, or helping others who lead people to do it better. He does this through team coaching (with a focus on Executive teams) and facilitation of strengths-based leadership development. He works with executives across the public, private and NFP sectors to build leadership bench strength and create achievement-based cultures aligned to strategy.


Along the way he’s gained extensive experience in strategic human resource management (National HRD and Executive People &Culture roles), organisational development, strategy development and execution. Marshall’s also earned (and taught) tertiary qualifications in management and organisational psychology and collects diagnostic/psychometric accreditations like some people collect All Blacks memorabilia, currently at 20 and counting.


Marshall is also a proud founding member of the leadership team for the Homeward Bound Project, a 20 Year initiative to equip a 10,000-strong global collaboration of women in science to lead, influence and contribute to policy as it informs the future of our planet.
